German philosopher Max Scheler dies in Frankfurt, Germany.

Less famous than many of his contemporaries, he was called by José Ortega y Gasset "the first man of the philosophical paradise."

Heidegger declared that all 20th century philosophers owed a debt to Scheler, who was "the strongest philosophical force in modern Germany, nay, in contemporary Europe and in contemporary philosophy as such." Karol Wojtyla, the future Pope John Paul II, wrote his doctoral thesis on "An Evaluation of the Possibility of Constructing a Christian Ethics on the Basis of the System of Max Scheler."
